Life Journey Often Rocky...

While another strong cold front will sweep thru by Saturday mid day bringing back sweaters and jackets, my thoughts tonight are with my wife's family . Brenda's step-Dad has passed away at the age of 82 after a long illness. Robert Olney was a giant of a man even though I only knew him for 6 years. He rose from being a salesmen at 3-M Company(Scotch tape, post-it-notes) in the late 40s to become President of 3-M Europe by the mid 70s. I respect a man who works hard to achieve, who transforms himself from being a follower to becoming a leader. Bob Olney was that type of person. He was not my Father, but I would be proud to have him as my Father. May he rest in peace as I am a better Bob for knowing this Bob.

My concern is freezing temperatures will certainly affect the Northshore Monday & Tuesday mornings, but some spots on the Southshore could reach freezing away from Lake P. Keep up on this system as it heads our way for Sat-Sunday.
